September 14, 2017 – ABC 7 in Los Angeles covers the $150 million settlement with LAUSD. The settlement arises from a 2015 lawsuit filed by Public Advocates, the ACLU Foundation of Southern California and Covington & Burling LLP on behalf of Reyna Frias and the Community Coalition. The lawsuit alleged that LAUSD was improperly reducing its obligation towards high-need students by crediting itself every year for some $450 million spent on special education services that were actually part of the district’s basic educational program. Over time, the accounting practice would have resulted in more than $2 billion in lost funds for services targeting high-need students.
